WINNIPEG — The Winnipeg Football Club has taken its latest $4.5 million step towards owning the Investors Group Field at the University of Manitoba.
The club that owns the Winnipeg Blue Bombers announced Wednesday morning that their 2015 payment had been made to Triple B Stadium Inc.
Wade Miller, President and CEO of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, said they were able to meet their 2015 financial target in large part thanks to the 103rd Grey Cup, FIFA Women’s World Cup and two major concerts held at the stadium.
The stadium was a year behind schedule and cost nearly $210 million. When it was first planned, the cost estimate for the new stadium was $115 million
